Actress Piper Perabo, who featured in movies such as Coyote Ugly and Cheaper by the Dozen, and stars in the television drama Covert Affairs, married producer-director Stephen Kay in NYC on July 26. This particular affair was not covert: the pair married in the Merchant House museum with select family and friends. The wedding had a New Orleans flair with a band following the couple out of the ceremony venue.
Piper wore a slinky 2014 Resort Michael Kors column dress in metallic silver. Who says brides can’t be sexy? She paired the dress with an olive veil and blush shoes. I didn’t particularly like the selection, but it was certainly unique. For a more traditional venue it would have been dreadful. One day she still may look at her wedding photos and say “what was I thinking?” I like the dress, but it wouldn’t be my first choice for a wedding gown. The dress looked good on her. It also looked good on Naomi Campbell, who wore it earlier this year at the National Television Awards, and for Katy Perry too when she wore a one-shoulder version at another event. But oh well, it seems Piper isn’t worried about wearing something custom, and so long as a bride feels beautiful on her wedding day, that’s what truly matters.
Stephen wore a three-piece blue suit with a gray hat. The hat was a jaunty touch, and it suited the New Orleans vibe– the pair were going for a more relaxed day so a blue suit was fine. This particular suit, however: hmmm. To me it looks like he borrowed it from his overweight Uncle Vinny, then slept in it under a railway overpass. Casual, I get, but wrinkled and ill-fitting? Not so much. And OMG, the scruffy boots. Oh, and that belt. Don’t get me started.
But, moving on to the flowers: Piper’s bouquet! She opted for a less structured assortment of blooms, which again, suited the more casual vibe. I think given the silver metallic dress, however, she might have gone for a bouquet that was more modern also; I do like the blush roses and overall palette with her attire.
The selection of flowers was lovely, and included roses, Queen Anne’s lace, spray roses, white stock, anenome, and assorted greenery. This less structured arrangement is a nice choice if you want a more relaxed look. Her celebrity florist probably charged her a good bit for it. If you want a similar look of mixed blooms, with Bunches Direct you can achieve it…for about $100! And remember that our consultants can customize any of our bouquets, if you want to add more of one type of flower, or substitute varieties!
